Another fine installment in the Hollywood Babylon poster series comes from The No-Good Wimp Suckahs (AKA WeThreeClub and Tom Lacey). I had the pleasure of printing these beauties last week and they turned out pretty nice I have to say. 2 colour print on cream A2 220gsm card, edition of 41. Available soon from Hollywood Babylon’s BigCartel page.
A couple of months ago I was asked by Science Gallery in Trinity College, Dublin if I would curate a small art show to run as part of their summer exhibition Elements: the beauty of Chemistry. The idea was to approach a number of Irish-based creative types and ask them to interprate one element from the Periodic Table in whatever way they saw fit. The response from the artists I approached was phenominal and in the end we received about 35 pieces to display and sell in the Science Gallery shop. More about the show in a separate post, but for now here’s a run down of my Scrabble-based print. This will eventually become a 7 colour screenprint and I’ll be doing a process step-by-step in a separate post.
Here’s my thought process behind the piece:
“On the wall above the blackboard in Chemistry class at school hung a large print of the Periodic Table. Not being the most Chemistry-inclined of students my eye would wander to this chart and I would proceed to mentally re-arrange the letters of the Elements into different words.
This exhibition presented the opportunity to realise my schoolboy mental game and what better form for it to take than Scrabble?
I printed out a copy of the table, cut out each individual element and commandeered the kitchen table for three days playing Elemental Scrabble. I would appeal to any Scrabble fans not to scrutinise my spelling too closely.”
The May 28th movie for Hollywood Babylon midnight movie club at Block T was John Carpenter’s apocalyptic horror “Prince of Darkness“. It was my turn to design a poster and here’s the result. The premonition/dream sequence really stood out for me and the image of the figure in the church doorway was just plain evil, despite being shot in broad daylight. A3 print on red card with matte gold and black ink. For sale now on Hollywood Babylon BigCartel page.
Facilities.ie is a local facilities management company “committed to providing the best facilities and property management services in Ireland, at the lowest possible costs to our clients.” I recently designed their logo and stationery suite for them. I also created a stencil version of the logo (for jetwashing!) – you might have seen these appear around Dublin over the last few weeks. Web design and build by Attik Designs.
Dublin HC band Famine asked me to screenprint a very limited number of covers for their LP “Shadows of the Past”. Nice, old school illustration by Claire Lennon. Printed 35 x red and 35 x black ink on 350gsm brilliant white card. Famine play tomorrow night (5/5/11) in Fibber’s with Bailout, Loose Nut, Bang Bros and Frustration. Record available for a tenner.
